WHAT'S THE BLACK POWER BLUEPRINT? The Black Power Blueprint is a project of the African People's Socialist Party led by Deputy Chair Ona Zené Yeshitela. It is an anti-gentrification project which is rapidly transforming the dire conditions of the black community in St. Louis into a thriving cultural hub of community programs such as: the Uhuru House venue space & African community center; Uhuru Jiko community commercial kitchen; the One Africa! One Nation! Marketplace; a basketball court, community gardens, a 50 foot flagpole with the Red Black and Green flag, and so much more! Follow the Black Power Blueprint on facebook & youtube:

USM is an organization of white people created by and accountable to the African People's Socialist Party. We organize in the white community for reparations to African people.

Featuring Penny Hess, Chairwoman of the African People’s Solidarity Committee and author of the book, Overturning the Culture of Violence, presenting the facts and data about the actual wealth generated for Europe and white America by the theft of the labor, culture, land and resources of African people, and why it is in the interest of white people to pay reparations to African people as the basis for true socialism on this planet.
